    Trying to find the grave of my ancestor

    Carlton Loeber Wayfarer

      I'm looking for the ancestry and burial site of my grandfather's grandfather who died after being mortally wounded at Gaines Mill, north of Richmond Virginia.  He died in the hospital at Broad Street Philadelphia in August other 1862.  I have his military record and the census report of he and his wife and their baby daughter in Newark New Jersey in 1860, he was born, it says in New York around 1839.  The records are contradictory as far as where he was buried, some say in Philadelphia, some say in Newark New Jersey.  In Newark, an administrator tried to place a new headstone on his grave in 1969, but could not find it.
